hey my names Laen .im 28 i was working as a diesel mechanic until 8-25-08 i suffered a intense accident to my eye i lost over 80% vision in one eye.im just now trying to get some oil back in my blood im starting at home with a 1991 chevy caprice classic small block 305 t.b.i with cast heads & center bolt valve covers.due to changes in exhaust and over two hundred thousand miles on her i felt the injection system was acting poorly.i developed a coolant leak at the front of the intake manifold so i decided now was the time to make some changes.im going to swap the t.b.i for a carb.i could use some advice so feel free to check in on me thanks i plan to add more pictures

Hi,
If this was my car I would just rebuild the engine, & either buy a new throttle body or rebuild the one you have (no doubt the later of the two)
change the cam, rebuild the heads & do a little porting to them, button it up & enjoy the ride.
